heidi, the environment clearly a global challenge, clearly a part of the foreign policy. how does it fit into the economic statecraft? >> it fits into a lot of different things the state department is working on. what we as a relatively new office of seven months and only a few people have been working on are much more than the sort of geographic priorities that the secretary has highlighted, so i probably wouldn't be the best person to speak to this department with a whole host of environmental issues. a lot more time on the year autozone and the relationship and then there's a little bit of a list from the economic analysis perspective that we tend to spend most of our time on. >> all of the subjects but maybe everybody else would like a chance to do that, too. questions? i think there is a microphone here. is there another mic? going once -- if people don't have questions i will ask them. okay. >> the council of the land that. one of the things that we observed both in the atlanta environment and looking at the global companies that has to do with our competitive edge advantage in col
population control, the environment and they don't have anything in common with us. they get a peak of did a couple people they have out front to be their conservative individuals but if you really start peeling back the leaders of the onion and will make you cry. it's not conservative at all. they've got us fighting on this issue so much that the national conservative authors are claiming that it's one of the conservative principles. we need to use our conservative principles to address our problem and i think that is what has happened to the recent and it's not just about trying to win the election but grow the party and welcome people and we are wanting you to feel like you are at home. many to learn that in their rhetoric that has been displayed and is doing more damage than it is good. >> i should preface my remarks on this by saying i am in complete agreement that conservatives and republicans need to do a better job or some cases a job for the first time to appeal to hispanic voters and other nonwhite voters but we shouldn't kid ourselves about some of the obstacles we need to start
obama. 30% bonus for a single year. in the current economic environment it may be to encourage more capital investment. i think we need to discuss whether we want to have the corporate income tax and how we want to make it work. secondly, obama gave all the tax cuts to small business under the guide of the stimulus that the republicans wanted the tax cuts are not a stimulus, they are antistimulus but he voted for all these things and the best indication is this during the savings and loan crisis 20 years ago, 3,000 felony convictions, a thousand of them insiders. they went to prison. how many prosecutions have we seen in the crisis that led to the meltdown in 2008? that's right and the statute of limitations is rapidly running out and that's why we neither side says we are going to go off to these people but lied, cheated and steel but if you read the financial crisis commission report they gave about $10 million which is like and 80 million or 100 million-dollar, no one's been able to poke a hole in that report and when it came to washington wanted conference to? dropped it in the
economic environment it may be good policy to encourage my capital investment. we need to fundamentally discuss the corporate income tax and how we want to make her. secondly, obama gave tax cuts to small businesses under the guise of stimulus that republicans wanted. they are inherently anti-stimulus, savings. but he voted for all these things. the best indication is during the long crisis 20 years ago, 3000 felony convictions, 8000 of them insiders went to prison. how many prosecutions have we seen in the crisis that led to the meltdown in 2008? that's right. the statute of limitations is rapidly running out and that's absolutely incredible. by the waycomehither sizes are going to go after these people who died, she didn't steal sealed, falsify documents. you read the financial crisis inquiry report which covers the $10 million to. monica lewinsky today is like take a million dollars investigation. no one has been able to poke a hole in that report. what did congress do? dropped it in the wrong focus they didn't want to so i think obama has been much too soft in dealing with these mat
, as does my environment just by nature. so the book is very much about our landscape, how we perceive it as fascinating in our youth and how over time it changes. the same substance -- stone, rock, water, wood -- go from being the unknown, worthy of curiosity, to at some point being a threat. and the natural defiance of us living our lives, which is in defiance of our mortality all the way from childhood where we're immortal to our elder years where we become the thing that holds so many people we've lost and is what survives. memory is what survives. and within that memory the afterlife of so much. so thank you. [applause] >> good afternoon. i'd also like to thank the organizers of the miami book fair for having me. when i started writing my book a year or two ago, i certainly did not expect i would end up here or seated on a panel with these gentlemen. i think what we've heard so far is that a lot of war stories represent a need to explain. why was there an outpost where there should never have been an outpost? what's the context within my own war experience? who was i before i went
into these environments which are very, very important places to be, and debate our core value, not just explained them, not just lecture, but actually debate our greatest strengths i think will be stronger. so that was one of the ways we really tried to do that. and also to take the benefit of the folks who were there in the field, give information as to who was the important audiences for the bbg. >> can i just clarify one thing? when i said more guidance from foreign policy leadership for the bbg, i certainly didn't mean that the bbg should forsake or distort or anyway jeopardize the journalistic values. very, very important. but for example, the bbg's, the board of governors decide where the assets are allocated. in other words, if the governors decide we're going to put all the money into india, it's their decision rather than the part of the more strategic decision-making process. congress would get involved if all the money went to one country. >> do you think? [laughter] >> there's certain country's bbg would like to get rid of that congress wouldn't allow and that sort of thing. but i'm guessi
